Who we are

ChangePath exists to shine a light on charitable giving in Australia. We're here to help you make better decisions about who you support and why.

Given our emphasis on transparency, it would be very odd if we weren't upfront about our methodologies, our data sources, and the limitations of what we do. We're under no illusions that this is perfect yet - there's a lot more to do before we can claim to be an authoritative source on charitable giving.

Learn more about who we are, what we do, and how you can help us to achieve our goals.

Many causes, many charities.

The world is full of problems to solve. There are diseases to cure, injustices to right, animals to save, and ideas to protect. These problems compete for our attention every day, trying to catch our eye, our passion, and often our wallets. Inevitably, tomorrow, there will be a new cause or problem, begging for us to listen.

How do you know what to do?

ChangePath aims to help you navigate the sea of problems facing humanity and the planet we live on. By helping you to narrow down the causes you're interested in, ChangePath helps you to emerge from indecision and start making a difference. It's not a decision we can make for you, but we can help. Our guide will take you through potential causes, helping you narrow down who you want to assist.
